-Discussion for (potentially) excessive Shell setiter options

I was going to add a warning to aggregators and filters, for the setiter
shell command (for ACCUMULO-953), but it looks like a warning was already
added for aggregators, and filters are no longer available anyway.
But, after looking at it, I see that it has a crazy amount of options, and
I can't imagine that is very useful to users.
I think we need to re-think the practice of providing a separate option for
The following I think are unnecessary:
-agg (--aggregator) // already has a deprecation warning
because, we already have:
I also think that if a particular iterator is really so useful that it
requires a special option, it should probably be in a separate command that
extends the setiter command, and reduces the number of options, instead of
growing the number of options (though, this has a downside, too, in that
there may grow an excess of commands).
We have an opportunity to deprecate some of these options now (with a
warning if used), before we release 1.5.0. Thoughts?
